Misty's Triumphs
27 August 2018 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

Believe me - When you watch this documentary's footage of ballet dancer, Misty Copeland twirling around like a top on the very tips of her toes - You will be delightfully dazzled and awestruck by this woman's astounding agility, balance, and control.

If you are someone who is interested in the fine art of dance - "A Ballerina's Tale" is definitely the kind of bio-documentary that is guaranteed to hold your rapt attention right to the very end.

In this 84-minute presentation - Misty Copeland confidently tells her story (with a little help from her friends) about her personal triumphs and professional achievements that put her directly into the spotlight of being the very first black dancer (in the American Ballet Theater's 75-year history) to be chosen for major parts in their lavish stage productions.
